Chromjuwelen, kings of chrome in Vienna, Austria
From 10/25 to 3/2 Chromjuwelen, kings of chrome, an exhibition of cars with history is shown at the technical museum in Vienna, Austria. Besides the Uhlenhaut Gullwing 300SLR there are Porsche prototypes, the Jaguar E-Type, that was owned by Jochen Rindt, a Bugatti Royale and best of all: a Bugatti Type57SC Atlantic. I saw this car for the first time in my life in reality and I was just blown away by such an incredible amount of beauty. Not even the Picasso Museum in Paris had such a lasting impression on me. Absolutely stunningly beautiful!

finally received my Toshiba Portege G900
Introduced at 3GSM last February in Barcelona, and supposed to ship in summer 2007, I just received my Toshiba Portege G900 . And believe it or not: it looks even better in reality than on the already impressive spec sheet. The 800*480 screen is just gorgeous. 2.5 times as many pixels as on the iPhone! Even though Windows Mobile is a little rough compared to OSX on the iPhone, the hardware specs make this device really usable as a portable computer. Hopefully Toshiba will use the upcoming Android OS from Google ASAP for this device or its sucessors (910, 920).

One Xmas party at SmartSpace, no plans to sell to T-mobile a third time
On 12/13 there was the annual One Xmas party at the One SmartSpace in Vienna, Austria. Their new CEO, Michael Krammer was there, too. He has been one of the leading guys behind the success of max.mobil, the second GSM operator in Austria. When T-mobile bought max.mobil and immediately killed the brand "max", which at that time was one of the best new brands in Austria, he left for tele.ring, at that time the smallest Austrian GSM operator. Within a short time frame he built tele.ring into a hugely sucessful low cost provider. Tele.ring became so successful, that T-mobile bought it and its more than one million customers for 1.3 billion Euros. Michael Krammer left again, as he obviously didn´t want to work for T-mobile and became the CEO of E-plus in Germany. In summer 2007 he came back to Austria to become CEO of One/Connect Austria, the number three GSM operator in Austria, now owned by Orange. When I asked him, if he wanted to make One even more sucessful, as they already are, so they might be bought by T-mobile, too, he definitively told me, that Orange, the new owner of One has a strong commitment to the Austrian GSM market, and has no plans at all to sell to T-mobile, ever. About the possibility of selling the Apple iPhone he was quite clear, that Orange/One will sell the iPhone in 2008 as early as possible.

wind and solar charger
The Hymini is a wind powered USB charger. Seems like a great product to me, but the website in one of the worst, I ever encountered, and I have seen a lot really bad ones. Simply incredible! When you want some infos, immediately click on Skip, then click on contact, where you find a contact form and at least some PDFs to download.
Update: the price for the wind charger is 50$, the optional solar panel costs 25$.
